Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

The #1 ranked Witbier here on BA... also on the "Beers of Fame" list.

Served in a Delirium Tremens shaped glass.

A: Poured a very soft, yet saturated dirty linen (yellow) color, with a spritzy finger or so head that looked very champagne-like.

S: Smell of banana and clove, without being too overpowering in the sugar department.

T: Oh yes, very clean and crisp, yet still maintaining the aforementioned spice profile. Wheaty, without being too bitter. As a matter of fact, I was stunned at how disciplined this one was in the bitter department.

M: Infinitely drinkable and bubbly on the palate. Sure, there was a sheet of lacing left on the glass, but that didn't stick around on the palate for long. Excellent!

O: One of the best wits available in my local area. I could easily pop a couple of these without putting a big dent in my sobriety. Excellent all around!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pale golden color, very cloudy, less than a finger of white head that dissipated quickly to a thin white collar and left little to no lacing.

Smell: Lemon, banana, dry powdery yeast, coriander, spice.

Taste: Spicy yeast character is the most prominent flavor. Also getting orange and lemon citrus, coriander, and wheat. There's a very slight tartness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium soft mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Crisp, refreshing and very easy drinking.

Overall: Really refreshing and flavorful witbier. One of the best I've had in the style.
